ICS is for mobile phones, honey comb is for tablets i think
Not true bro. ICS was introduced to standardize the Android OS across mobile phones and tablets.

To everyone who ordered, you gotta wait indefinitely again! New delays!
Yea sad news...high chance no christmas present!

There have been rumors Asus is delaying shipment becos of wifi issue, some pple saying becos of the cool metallic housing, wifi signal is not very good..

Asus havent confirm anything, but the 19th Dec release date seems to be still standing...at least until more news...zzzzzz

Merry CNY, its still good.

If it really comes out in SG by mid Jan, its still the most powerful tablet for afew more months, and I think it will still be hard for other manufacturers to top Asus's slick design.

i don think it will reach us by mid Jan, there are lots of complains on US following the rumors of the delay.

Asus will satisfy the US market first, considering its one of the biggest market.
SG is too small to be given any priorty, even though we are the hub of SEA, the market is so much smaller.

btw the situation or rumor in US atm(according to http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1412) is that only 1 or 2 resellers(I think Gamestop or BestBuy) will be able to fulfill their pre-orders by 19th of Dec, at least according to the rumors they managed to secure the early batches of QC passed Prime.
There are still plenty of pre-orders to fulfill from Amazon, J&R, BH, etc, Asus will ship to them first and then ship the Prime for actual in-store, after that maybe it will be sg. I heard Europe will be getting in Jan as well, so there should be alot of stocks to fill..

Note: all these are rumors! nothing is confirmed, but at least Asus SG has said we will be getting it in mid Jan...

Looks good so far indeed!

A bit disappointed at the sluggishness at multitasking which hopefully ICS will fix.
He also mentioned apps being evicted from RAM (and you losing any unsaved changes) during heavy multitasking, which is a concern for me as I'm looking for a netbook replacement. Why ASUS didn't dump in more than 1GB RAM is really zzz
